Nice, thanks Xin.

I think a good fix for this is to not allow the application to go
below net.sctp.rto_min, and neither above net.sctp.rto_max.

Then they can even be close to each other, won't be an issue, as long
as rto_min is something sensible. Which then brings it to the second
step of a fix: to restrict rto_min to be >= HZ/5 (copying from TCP
here).
